Unhappy Excel-Adding hours and minutes
I am tryinmg to add hours and minutes in Excel and nothing I try seems to work. By hours ansd minutes I'm looking to add say 8 hours and 30 minutes plus 7 hours and 40 minutes . The answer should be 16 hrs. 10 min. and I get 15 hrs. 70 minutes or a decimal. Can anyone help me with this I'm ready to pull my hair out!

Click on the cell of your total hours and minutes.
Format-Cells, hit Custom at the bottom and type this in:

In addition to Dreamboat's solution, you also maybe entering 8:30 and 7:40 as text hence your 15:70
